Liong Lie awarded 2nd prize for Mayte Commodore competition
Liong Lie Architects has been awarded second prize for the Mayte Commodore competition in Madrid. The office made a design for the reuse of the Mayte Commodore building in the Spanish capital. The mission was to preserve the essence of Luis Gutierrez Soto’s building and remodel into an integrated leisure area.
The vision was to restore the building, a former restaurant, as a tribute to the Spanish architect Luis Gutierrez Soto (1890-1977) and update its elements with 21st century content to match surrounding contemporary cosmopolitan leisure buildings. Because the building has to accommodate a new mixed leisure program, a compromise had to be made between original design elements and proposed functions. The new design involves restoring the front facade and main entrance by opening up the facade with full height windows, replacing the black foil by copper blades, bringing back the outside stairs and relocating a bar behind the entrance. In line with the urban structural protection, it gives the building a more inviting appearance towards the street and creates opportunities for commercial use of the pedestrian area as terrace.
The Mayte Commodore building is located on Plaza de la Republica Argentina and defines the urban space of the plaza together with the surrounding buildings. Because surrounding buildings are higher, it weakens the urban quality of the building and visually suggests it to be short or missing a clear ending in height. The solution: a temporary metal structure added to the roof, covered with plants and used as roof terrace. This “green dome” will give the building a stronger urban presence and adds value to the urban view of the city.
Instead of spaces, places are created. Meaning that different areas can be interconnected or used separately. The interior shows the existing 'rough' identity of the building, in contrast 'smooth' materials will be added. The basement is used as disco/club and has a separate entrance and car drop off zone. A beer bar, restaurant and cocktail bar are located on the first floor with original rough ceiling, original kitchen wall with visibility from the restaurant, a central bar breaking the space and a copper wall accommodating utility areas. The second floor is designed as event centre. There are six rooms, but sliding doors allow the rooms to be joined together to create bigger spaces. The green dome as roof terrace unites conservation and innovation and provides a place to relax and enjoy the view of Madrid’s skyline.

The winning entries of the design competition "A View 4 you" have officially been announced. The competition, sponsored by Bohemen, covers an entirely new concept for so called 'brand centers' for Bospoort in Leiderdorp. The task to translate this concept into an idea, conceptual plan or design has been picked up by many architects and students.
All entries were judged by an expert jury, who awarded Delft design students Matthew La Roi and Xing Wang first prize with a majority vote. The submission of Liong Lie Architects received second prize. The third prize went to SD Architect.
For now, the winning design will not be eligible for the additional price as mentioned before. In the coming period Bohemen will consult with the winners about a possible follow-up.

Divinatio wins Venuez Award for best restaurant design 2008
Venuez awarded 123DV architecture as the winner of the best restaurant design 2008.
Juryrapport: De architect van Divinatio is er briljant in geslaagd om in een uitdagend, doch logistiek zeer lastig ingedeeld pand, een prachtig, functioneel restaurantinterieur te creeeren.
De toegepaste lange zichtlijnen zorgen voor overzicht en uitzicht, nisjes creëren intimiteit. Met de materiaalkeuze is rekening gehouden met zowel het visuele als het voelbare effect. Ook de aandacht voor de akoestiek verdient een extra punt. Het restaurant design van Divinatio bewijst dat de kracht vaak in de uitdaging zit.
Architect Liong Lie van 123DV: Het design van de genomineerde restaurants in deze categorie zijn van een hoog niveau en ontworpen door gerenomeerde ontwerpers. Wij zijn ontzettend blij dat we als nieuwe speler in deze markt worden gewaardeerd met wat we in Divinatio hebben gerealiseerd.
